AgentScape development

The power of AgentScape lies in the fact that it is relatively easy to create your own applications using the platform. The middleware takes care of starting and distributing agents and services, so the programmer can focus on creating the agents themselves.

Maven

Previous versions of AgentScape used Apache Ant as main development tool, but for AgentScape 2.0 we have chosen to use Apache Maven for its superior dependency handling, and to attempt to keep the code from different projects separate and easier to manage.

  • The maven section can be found here!

In this section we will try to explain a little bit of the basics of using AgentScape and Maven to develop agent-based applications. For those that want to keep using ANT to build applications, this is still possible, but you have to create your own build files and include the libraries from AgentScape manually.
